The Best Celebrity Baby Announcements Ever

Mindy Kaling, Cardi B and Amy Schumer have very different approaches...

Celebrity baby birth announcements

by Anna Dewhurst |

Surprise! Mindy Kaling - actor and writer - has announced that she welcomed a baby son in September. Mindy shared the news via a virtual appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and we were shocked! Her pregnancy was not common knowledge, and lockdown has made it far easier to enjoy an incognito pregnancy. 'This is news to a lot of people', she revealed. 'It’s true! His name is Spencer.' Congratulations Mindy!

There is nothing we like more than a photo of a newborn, all tiny fingers and toes, bundled up in a soft blanket- so we await a celebrity birth announcement like it’s Christmas morning. While the majority of celebrities treat us to a hand or foot poking through the aforementioned blanket, there are the exceptions, like Cardi B’s ode to Beyonce and Miranda Kerr’s personalised baby blanket. Check out the gallery below to see just how the A-listers introduce the new tiny humans in their life…
